Butler hits game victor in OT, 76ers survive Hornets, Walker’s 60

Boston Celtics' Kyrie Irving shoots over Charlotte Hornets' Kemba Walker during the first half of an NBA basketball game in Charlotte N.C. Monday Nov. 19 2018

Cody Zeller was having a pretty solid game up until the overtime period, where he missed some key shots in the paint close to the basket.

That loss, dropping the Hornets to 7-8, came despite Walker scoring a Hornets-record 60 points. I think the support from his teammates to get him going, to lift him up, that to me is one of the highlights of the night. "After that, it's about finding the right group that is willing to compete, willing to stay aggressive", Borrego said.

Butler, playing in his third game with his new team, responded with "bet", then drained the 3-pointer. The Sixers led 42-30 at the end of the first quarter after shooting 62 percent from the field. Trading Kemba would set back NBA basketball in Charlotte, as trading or allowing players to leave in free agency has been a tradition for the Hornets. That flat start appeared to have second-half ramifications.

Butler's play in the final seconds was the difference. Dwayne Bacon and Miles Bridges picked up his minutes tonight, and it wouldn't surprise me if they continue to steal his minutes moving forward. Embiid also scored seven points in the final 2:52 of Friday's game and was a ideal 4-of-4 from the free-throw line.

"That was an incredible 20 seconds of Jimmy Butler", Brown said.

On a night where the opposing point-guard scored 60 points, it's a good thing Ben Simmons chose to show up in a big way as well.

Borrego didn't offer any specifics as to how the rotation might change Monday against the Boston Celtics, but it was clear Sunday he was reevaluating. "He's one of those guys that can get up and finish, so whenever I get the ball off a rebound I'm looking at him". Borrego is happy with what those two are doing, but it's not the same as Kidd-Gilchrist.

Embiid has feasted on the Hornets this season, with 42 points and 18 rebounds and 27 points and 15 rebounds in his previous two games.
